Earlier this week in Ellicott City, a man was killed when he ran a red light on his 2013 Kawasaki Ninja.

He continued speeding and then ran another red light at the intersection of Route 40 and Rogers Avenue. As he ran the second red light, he crashed into a Saturn sedan that was turning left.

Yet, every year, hundreds of innocent people — men, women and children injured due to another person’s negligent actions — are sent to hospital emergency rooms all across this state simply because of another individual’s careless or outright negligent actions.

Whether one rides a motorcycle to work, school, for shopping or just for enjoyment, the caveat for any rider is that automobile and trucking-related collisions can happen anytime, anywhere. Many a motorcyclist has been caught unaware in a severe and life-threatening roadway collision only because he or she was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
